Silent Hills vs Resident Evil 7: Capcom Denies They Took Inspiration From Silent Hills/P.T

Resident Evil 7 v Silent Hills

The first thing many of us thought when first seeing Resident Evil 7 during E3 2016's Sony media briefing was Capcom actually stealing ideas and art from Silent Hills demo's P.T. Well, it seems this is not the case anyway, as Capcom reiterated recently they had been working on this concept even before the P.T. demo was displayed in public.

"When PT surfaced we were already into development and we were surprised to see it," producer Kawata told Eurogamer. "We were already using a first-person perspective before anyone saw PT, so it wasn't as if we saw that and decided to do the same," director Nakanishi added.

"It was already happening, so were surprised and – seeing PT and the reaction, it was a signpost for us that it was a good direction to be going in.

"As for the fact there are corridors and such, well, we had that in Resident Evil 1 in 1996. For us it's about going back to our roots. All of these things were going to be in the game."

Resident Evil 7 is releasing on January 26 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with the PS4 version being totally compatible with PlayStation VR for a true virtual reality experience. Do you trust Capcom upon this matter? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
